Additional Transcript Information

  • You are responsible for notifying each institution to forward official transcripts to JCCC. Transcripts from other institutions will be released to JCCC only upon request of the applicant. Faxed or hand-carried copies will not be accepted.
  • If course work has been completed at JCCC, a copy of your transcript will be placed in your file.
  • It is not necessary to request transcripts from previous colleges if JCCC already has them on file.  Please contact Admissions if you have any questions. 

Individuals applying to selective admission programs who have a non-U.S. high school and/or college education, and are seeking possible credit for program requirements, should review the Transfer Credits for International and Immigrant Students information. 

Individuals presently in the United States who do not currently hold a lawful immigration status need to be aware that a background check or proof of eligibility is required, and therefore:

  • Those who have not been approved for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) may have difficulty providing the necessary documentation for the background check. Those who have been approved for DACA may present their Employment Authorization (EAD) document, and driver’s license or passport. Students who are DACA approved should not assume their DACA approval guarantees they will pass the background check.  Visit the USCIS website for additional DACA information.
  • Individuals who are F-1 visa holders, with a JCCC Form I-20 who are maintaining status, may be asked to present their I-2 and passport, driver’s license, I-94 card or printout.
  • The state of Kansas requires specific identification and employment eligibility documentation to sit for and be given state licensure. Students who do not hold lawful work authorization or status may sit for the licensure examination with the required identification. Their licensure documentation may, however, be withheld from them until they are able to demonstrate lawful employment authorization.

All students currently enrolled in prerequisite courses may be selected for admission to the MICT program if all admission material is received by the deadline date and official evidence of successful completion of these courses is received prior to the first day of class.

Applicants with completed admission applications who meet prerequisites will be scheduled for an interview. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds 38, applicants will be ranked by the preferred criteria, and the top 38 will be interviewed.

The interview process will involve review of academic preparation, related experience, and personal characteristics relevant to student success in the program. All interviews are held on campus with the applicant in person, with no exceptions.

Final rankings will reflect the consensus of a committee of assessors from the college, the program and professionals in the field.

Those applicants ranked high enough to be accepted will be notified by student email and given 10 days to accept their position.

The student must complete the JCCC Health Record and Physical Examination form. This form will be provided to the student and will be due in March. If the deadline is not met, the student may be subject to termination.

All questions concerning the program should be directed to the EMS Department, 913-469-8500 ext. 4564 or 3419.

Preferred Criteria for Ranking

Criteria Weighting
GPA Actual GPA (max 4.0)
Anatomy/Physiology GPA Grade points x 2 (max 8)
A/P Test  Up to 2 points
EMT Grade Grade points x 2 (max 8)
EMT Test Up to 2 points
BA/BS Degree 4 points
Completion of EMT Practicum EMS 133 2 points

One point per credit hour with a "C" or better in COLL 176, COLL 178, COLL 186 or COLL 200 Up to 3 points

For example, a student having a GPA of 3.0, who completed EMS 131 with a “B”, completed BIOL 144 with an “A”, completed their A/P test with a 70%, completed EMT test with a 90%, completed EMS 140, COLL 176 & COLL 178 with a “C” or better:

GPA 3.0 +EMS 131 6.0 + BIOL 144 8.0+ EMT test 1.8 +A/P test 1.4 + EMS 140 2.0 + COLL 176 1.0 + COLL 178 1.0 + COL 178 1.0=24.2 points. 

A maximum of 35 points is available.
